Seven Key Elements of Success: Element 6: Outsourcing
At some point, you’re going to wonder where all the time is going to come from for you to control and manage all the things you need to do.
If you’ve started on your plan and are taking action, you will have realized that there aren’t enough hours in the day for you to do everything that you’d like to do!
Initially you will manage, if you’re staying focused and avoiding the distraction, you’ll be surprised at just how much you can accomplish on your own.
You’ll get your systems set up, your product selected, your list being built and you’ll find yourself, as do all successful marketers, with an inbox full of payment transactions every day. Trust me, it’s a great thing to wake up to.
There is going to come a day when things may slow down and, like Joe in our last chapter, you’ll realize that you need to Keep It Going, just like Joe did!
Eventually you’ll realize that you can’t possibly give the best service to your customers, while at the same time you are setting up systems, learning about the technology you want to employ, and marketing and building your business!
Just like Every Successful Marketer. You’ll need to consider…
I’m telling you now, because it is one of the Keys that Every Successful Marketer Follows. (Hey the whole reason I’m writing this is because John outsourced some email copy to me, He wouldn’t be too good a mentor if he left out such an important key)
John doesn’t give any advice that he hasn’t used himself, everything he teaches is what is working for him and making him a full time income. Just like the income you could be making soon.
You might not want to hear this, but part of being a successful marketer means you’ll become a ‘Business Manager.
As a Business Manager, you’ll need to delegate some aspects of your business to others.
As your business brings in the profits, you’ll come across people who all have different skill sets, you’ll also find places you can go to to find someone to complete a task for you for a very reasonable cost.
Once you start placing real value on your time, you’ll find that some things are just ‘cheaper’ to get outsourced, leaving you free to spend more time doing what you do best!
That’s one of the great things about being a successful marketer; you can focus on doing what you do best, and let others do the same. It becomes a real ‘win, win’ situation for all parties concerned.
Why would you want to spend 2 – 3 hours designing graphics for example, when you could use that time to earn you a few hundred dollars doing what you’re best at?
Wouldn’t it make more sense to pay someone else to do the graphics out of the profit you could make with that time, still leaving you some left over AFTER you’d paid?
That’s why outsourcing is such a big key to every successful marketer, it leaves them free to use the time saved to do what they do best, thereby further improving their business.
There are many places to find good outsourcing, you just need to search around and ask people you trust. A good mentor will help you and point you to some great resources if you have one.
As you’re becoming a successful marketer, you’ll need to employ the keys that will help you along the way; I hope I’ve shown you that outsourcing is definitely something you need to make a note of, along with the previous five keys we’ve already discussed.
